Mother’s Day Thoughts

This year marks my 14th year as a mom and it has been a journey filled with ups and downs but overall, I wouldn’t want it any other way. My heart is full and blessed with so many memories of my kids growing up right in front of me.

As I celebrate another mother’s day with my family, I would like to share with you these 2 important words about motherhood that has brought meaning and helped me navigate through this journey.

SURRENDER. Only when we surrender our children to God, will we ever mother them the best possible way. Our children are not ours and we are just assigned to nurture, love and guide them to become the person that God has created them to be.

SEASONS. Our journey as a mother will vary in the different seasons in life. Each season is as special as the other. Let us enjoy each one and make the most out of it. While the children are young, it might be physically tiring but as they grow, the challenges will differ and we might realize that it can become more emotionally draining. Each stage has its own beauty and difficulties – we need to have a perspective that embraces each season.

Praying for us all. May we continue to be the moms our children needs us to be.
